Will we see a mid-week White House 'News Dump?'
Normally, the WH releases bad news on Fridays. But, with the media going gaga over the recall, do you guys think BushCo will try to slip anything out today in hopes it will be given short shrift?

1. Yeah. They'll release the names of Valerie Plame's unmaskers
They'll send some low-level, physically unattractive male functionary into a room with about four reporters in it. One from the Washington Whore Times, one from the New York Whore Post, one from Faux News, and Ann Coulter. Okay, three media whores and someone who's not even a real blonde. No television cameras or tape recorders will be in the room. The lights will be set to a low level to discourage existing-light photography, and the functionary's oily skin will discourage flash photography.

The functionary will begin:

"Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. We are here to report our findings in the Wilson Affair.

(dropping voice to near whisper and cadence to doubletime) "We have determined that President Bush and Vice President Cheney had called six reporters to inform them of the organizational ties of Valerie Plame to the United States Government, and that Karl Rove had provided this information to syndicated columnist Robert Novak.

"We have also determined that (raises voice to excited level) The War In Iraq Is Going Exactly According To Plan. Our Heroes Have Succeeded In All They Have Attempted And You Are a Lousy Unpatriotic Commie To Doubt Them.

'Further {voice to loud shout) California is about to gain a great American as governor when the spendthrift Gray Davis is turned out into the street and Arnold Schwarzenegger takes the helm of America's largest state.

"Thank you. That concludes our briefing. No questions will be accepted."

2. Well, all the information regarding the outing of the spy is due today
from the White House staffers. Does that count?

4. Didn't you hear
The WH lawyers have decided to go through the material first and organize it. They claim it will take a couple of weeks. (I'm not kidding).

5. They announced three more Iraq KIAs
Even though they happened yesterday. "See story, page 186."
